Catalyzing worker co-ops & the solidarity economy

Co-op question included in 2022 Economic Census

On January 31, the United States Census Bureau mailed invitations to selected businesses to complete the 2022 Economic Census. The Economic Census is the official five-year measure of American business and the economy. Data provided by businesses fuels comprehensive economic statistics representing all U.S. industries and geographies. 

Included in the 2022 Economic Census is a question that asks, “Is this establishment a cooperative?”
